Hixon Dance inspires audiences, empowers communities through movement, and elevates the field of dance in Columbus, Ohio.


Hixon Dance creates evocative works of modern dance for stage and film. We offer classes for the community to engage them in the act of creating, and collaborate with other artists and mediums in the generation of new work. Our goals include:

  • creating and presenting new dance works for the public

  • engage various community groups in educational and outreach initiatives, empowering them to create in a body positive environment

  • develop and inspire new audiences for modern dance

  • foster the growth and development of local dance artists

  • enhance and enrich the performing art offerings in the central Ohio area and beyond


“For me, choreographing is a way of thinking about the world and about the people in it. Making dances constantly challenges me to look and re-look at my own perceptions, methodologies, and practices. Through dance I convey specific concepts, striking resonance with the viewer. For me, a successful dance is one that is carefully crafted, thoughtful, and genuine. While my own creative process continually undergoes change, the goal for my work remains the same: to bring to life a multi-faceted perspective on the world, no matter how dark or humorous, painful or euphoric.”
